Food waste disposers are machines that dispose the food waste from commercial and residential spaces. Food waste disposal units are small macerators that are installed in the kitchen sink outlets of domestic households. These disposers dispose the waste that otherwise decomposes and creates odor, attracts pests, and serves as a breeding ground for bacteria. Food waste disposers play an important role in protecting the environment.
Removing kitchen waste and reducing the compost results in increased opportunity for these machines to be installed in kitchens. Other factors that drive the food waste disposers market includes reduced space for food waste storage, and reduced incidence of disease-causing vector attraction compared to food waste storage or collection pits. Also, as these machines are cheap, they are widely used for residential purposes. They are considered environment friendly and a sustainable option to reduce food wastage. Food waste disposers are compact in design and efficient, combining safety and ease of use along with performance, reliability, and functionality, due to the growing pressure of removing organic waste from landfills. All these factors contribute to an increased market for food waste disposers. On the other hand, factors such as increased water consumption and increased usage of electricity restrain the market to a certain extent. Food waste disposers are an excellent source of biogas, which is seen as an opportunity in the market.
